Fastlane is the final Raw exclusive pay per view event before WrestleMania and this year it has huge hopes for building up greater WrestleMania feuds and continuing some.
Let us discuss all the matches that are scheduled for the event;
WWE Universal championship – Kevin Owens vs. Goldberg – The scheduled main event of the show and it features Goldberg in a title match after thirteen years. We are not expecting much of a classic match from these two individuals as we have seen Goldberg’s current condition. We think the match would not go on for over five minutes and Goldberg will come out victorious in this match in a dominant fashion. Chris Jericho might also get involved in it to cost Kevin the title. We doubt if Lesnar would come out during the match. He might come out to taunt Goldberg after the match.
Sportzwiki Prediction – Goldberg wins and becomes new WWE Tag Team champions
Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman – Arguably the most anticipated match of the show is the monster mash between Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman. So what to expect from this match? None of the athletes are favored by the fans, it would be interesting to see whom the crowd cheer for. We hope to see a good contest, Braun has shown great potential lately which makes up hopeful. We think most of the match will be dominated by Braun, and Roman will look strong later in the match but Braun will snatch the win somehow, maybe Undertaker interferes and costs Roman the match to build up their WrestleMania feud.
Sportzwiki Prediction – Braun Strowman wins
WWE Raw Tag Team championships – The Club vs. Enzo and Cass – One thing we expect to see in this match is some unique botch. Yes, we are serious, since Enzo Amore is involved in this match botches are necessary. Honestly, we are not expecting to see some great contest. So let us not talk about this much.
Sportzwiki Predictions – The Club wins and retains
WWE Cruiserweight championship – Neville vs. Jack Gallagher – This feud is not been built up very well, however, it had a good potential. Neville is the only interesting wrestler to watch in the 205 Live and if there is no one else to get excited for is completely the creative team’s fault. There are great wrestlers like TJ Perkins, Braun Kendrick and of course Jack Gallagher; who is a former MMA fighter. We are hoping to see a good contest and it does not seem to be given more than a ten-minute booking.
Sportzwiki Prediction – Neville Retains
Samoa Joe vs. Sami Zayn – Another anticipated match from the show; we predict one more thing out of this match rather than the winner of it; we think this is going to be the best match of the show. We think this is going to be one hell of a physical match. Just one thing, we hope Zayn does not get buried. Joe is going to dominate most of the match for sure, and he would win too, but pushing Joe should not be the reason of Zayn’s burial.
Sportzwiki Prediction – Samoa Joe wins
WWE Raw Women’s championship – Bayley vs. Charlotte Flair – We are still not liking it, no matter how good this match becomes, Charlotte will win at the end because one thing is for sure; Charlotte will not lose her pay per view streak just before WrestleMania. They ruined Bayley’s dramatic win to look Charlotte greater. Yes, Charlotte is one hell of an athlete but they are doing a bit too much with Charlotte.
Sportzwiki Prediction – Charlotte Flair wins and becomes the new champion.
Sasha Banks vs. Nia Jax – Now, we would predict something different for this match. Most would predict the easy choice which is Nia Jax but we think Sasha is going to pick up the victory in this case and Bayley will be involved in this match somehow. We are damn sure that they are building up a Bayley – Sasha feud for future and it will get a slow progress at Fastlane too.
Sportzwiki Prediction – Sasha Banks win.
